This unique eco-home in the Waitakere Ranges was conceptualised as a series of ‘tents’ positioned to optimise the site’s unique coastal and bush location. Each tent has a specific function: eating, living, sleeping, playing and bathing. The ‘greeting tent’ is the gateway to the ‘living tent’, the ‘sleeping tent’ and the ‘winter tent’. Timber slatted linkways provide for directional movement and link the main tents. The living and sleeping tents frame fantastic harbour views.
